Gift Suggestions to Send To our Soldiers Overseas


I am a current college graduate and I am forever on the lookout for good presents for my friends in the armed forces. On one hand, these troopers are bold and respectable. On the other hand, they are also in their 20’s, just like me i. e., not used to not having the 해외선물대여업체 conveniences of home or the thrill of a good time. I would like to let you know my own gift idead for my friends in the soldiers. I hope you will be able to utilize these suggestions to assemble a good gift basket for military overseas.

Gifts for the soldiers ideally fit into three categories: useful, fun, and good for bartering. Try to include at least two of these three categories in a box you send; a box full of just “toys” is great, but doesn’t keep a soldier’s feet warm; similarly, a box full of practical items might be appreciated, but it’s no fun to share with one’s buddies in the platoon.

Good useful items to include might be personal hygiene products such as dental floss, soap with soothing ingredients such as coconut oil, aloe or lotion. A popular deoderant or toothpaste would be highly appreciated as would some soft wash clothing items. From a practical point of view; new underwear, socks, undershirts, bug repellant and air freshener would be good and welcome things to include. Keep in mind however; it would not be such a good idea to send food.

Our soldiers love fun things, too! For fun presents to send to our soldiers, small electronics like iPods (load it with music before you send it! ) and inexpensive digital camera models (with extra memory! ) are recommended. Platoons often have a lucky guy whose family sent a portable DVD player; movies and television series are great diversions. Also, don’t forget “real toys” like baseballs and frisbees.

You can express your thoughtfulness to your favorite knight by sending them items that can be bartered. For example, tobacco, as used by my own grandfather in World War II, is still a great bargaining processor for troopers who are looking for somebody to take over a shift or share rations with. Prudently packaged men’s magazines will also be welcome. However, remember that you cannot ship certain items: spirits, drugs, and ammo should not be mailed, especially internationally.

Do you have any good ideas that a service member such as a lieutenant, sergeant or a captain would appreciate? Create and send them a great gift basket and boost their morale. Sending letters and pictures are always welcome and tells them someone back home is thinking of them. Whatever you determine to send, check the regulations for what is allowed to be delivered to them.
